Tom Ingram Loses Front Row Spot After Ride Height Test Failure

1 Mins read

Tom Ingram has been stripped of his front row spot after failing the ride height test after qualifying for the final Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship meeting at Brands Hatch GP.

The Speedworks Motorsport driver had qualified a mere 0.006s adrift of pole-sitter, Colin Turkington, narrowly missing out on what would have been his third pole position of the 2016 season.

Ingram’s Toyota Avensis was later found to be too low when checked over by scrutineers after qualifying, meaning the 23-year-old will start the opening race on Sunday from 31st and last on the grid.

The demotion promotes fellow Toyota driver Rob Austin to the front row, also moving championship outsider Jason Plato to third in his Silverline Subaru Team BMR Levorg GT.

Points leader Sam Tordoff will therefore move up to 10th on the grid, while Honda title rivals Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal now start seventh and 11th for round 28.
